Sound and Performance in Poetry of the Americas
This seminar considers the role of sound and performance in poetry of the Americas across a range of periods and movements. We are interested in case studies and theoretical discussions that consider musically inflected texts; archives of performance; graphical representations of sound on the page; uses of creoles and vernaculars; and methodological inquiries into the intersections of sound studies, performance studies, distant reading, close reading, and hemispheric studies.

The Society for American Travel Writing invites submissions for its upcoming panel at the triennial meeting of the Society for the Study of American Women Writers, November 4-8, 2015 in Philadelphia.
In keeping with the conference theme of "Liminal Spaces, Hybrid Lives," we welcome papers that explore the ways in which crossing ideological, political, economic, intellectual, and creative boundaries are elaborated in women's travel experiences and travel texts. Because the word "limen" suggests crossing thresholds, an inherent aspect of geographic movement, our panel seeks to investigate how the various mobilities of geography, politics, and identity meet and intersect in women's travel writing.
The English Graduate Organization at the Univ. of Georgia invites papers in a wide range of disciplines for our annual conference this upcoming March 20-21 (panels 1/2 day Friday and a full day on Saturday). While we as an organization stress literary studies, we hope to foster an eclectic group that touches on a wide range of exciting, ongoing scholarship. Furthermore, scholars of any stripe are encouraged to apply. We wish to have every level of the academy represented, from distinguished faculty to beginning graduate students (or even promising undergraduates). Status should not be a factor (be it discipline or experience level): our focus is the promotion of high-quality, new, and innovative work.

The Evelyn Scott Society invites abstracts of 1-2 pages on the American writer Evelyn Scott (1893-1963). Papers may focus on any of her works (novels, memoir, poetry, young adult literature), and they may take any contemporary critical approach. We are especially interested in papers that investigate the process of canonicity, the literary networks to which Scott belonged, or the role of disability in her career, but all topics will be considered. Scott participated in various and major literary currents during her writing life, including Imagism, naturalism, and modernism, and she had a wide variety of literary mentors, including Lola Ridge, Theodore Dreiser, Waldo Frank, William Carlos Williams, and Jean Rhys, among others.
